Abstract

Summary: Dissociative identity disorder (DID) is a severely debilitating disorder. Despite the recognition in the current and past versions of the DSM DID remains a controversial psychiatric disorder, hampering its diagnosis and treatment. Neurobiological evidence regarding the aetiology of DID supports clinical observations that DID is a severe form of post traumatic stress disorder.
